You are God’s temple

Do you ever wonder when God looks down from heaven and sees what we are doing to our own bodies? Is He laughing or is He upset? Your body is a temple of God.

1 Corinthians 3: 16 – 17 "Your body is a temple of God"

“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him, for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.”

I just love these verse with all my heart, the Apostle Paul is reminding the people in Corinth their bodies are the temples of God and to top it off that the Holy Spirit lives in us. A warning to them and we is “if anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him.”

What destroys God's temple?

Now how can I destroy the “temple of God?” My husband starts laughing at me, seriously. “People are using drugs and they are using alcohol and immoral behavior, debauchery.” I forgot about that, it seems I am walking around with blinkers over my eyes.

Encouring thoughs

I want to encourage you today to look after your body and remember that this body you have nowhere on earth actually belongs to the Lord our God of lights. We are His children bought with the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

God love you!

Stop destroying your body! It’s a temple of God!

My heart is to see each and every person restored to God's purpose. We have so many avenues we can take, one of them is to take some time and spend it in the Word of God. The Bible, learning and meditating on God's Word. Renewing our minds, feeding our souls. Focusing on the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Be blessed, God loves you He sent His only begotten son for you.


Body, Gods Temple, Jesus Christ, Love

Yes my friend ..
We who love the Lord and have asked Him into our hearts should always remember that we are not our own , we have been bought at the price of the blood of our Saviour , and that indeed, our bodies are the Temple of His Holy Spirit and we should treat them accordingly please Him and not ourselves.
Many blessings to you
